Ben Affleck Says He 'Probably' Wouldn't Like Someone if They Voted Republican
breitbart ^ | 12/9/13 | c toto

Posted on 12/09/2013 7:41:55 PM PST by bestintxas

Ben Affleck is smart enough to know an actor taking up political causes can shatter the illusion movies are meant to conjure.

Yet the Argo director and avowed liberal still sticks his foot in his mouth during a new interview with Playboy Magazine by insulting half of his audience.

Seems he's not sure he can be friends with anyone who pulls the lever repeatedly for GOP politicians.

The future Dark Knight (Affleck plays Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel) said he can't help but consider an actor's politics while watching movies, and he takes that information to heart.

When I watch a guy [on screen] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That shit fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion.

Affleck isn't alone in his lack of tolerance. Singer Katy Perry went so far as to not invite her parents to President Barack Obama's inauguration because they dared to call themselves Republican.

I can tell you this , I probably will not like or be interested in being a friend to someone if I know they vote Democrat . To me , now days , Democrat voter equates with being un-American , deceitful , inclined to excusing any degree of lies or subversion , as long as it advances their Party’s goals . Democrat is not what it used to be. It has been hijacked by Alinsky Communists and those that fail to see that are simply in denial . Those that do see that and retain their affiliation are committing treason and I hold them in utter contempt

And so do we all, Ben. I go to great lengths to avoid your movies.

Ben Affleck can’t act worth a flip so I won’t be missing anything by avoiding his movies and his lectures! All I see is a liberal dumb*ss when I look at him whether in real life or his pretend life.

Big deal! I wouldn’t stop on the sidewalk to say hello to Affleck, or any other fascist Democrat. I don’t mind watching celebrities perform their craft, and there are actors who are genuinely smart and talented people, who work hard at what they do, and some of them are good people, but there are few of them I would want to befriend, or waste time getting to know.

..and I’m pretty sure, without thinking about it too much, that I probably wouldn’t like him very much either.

I tend to like people who have spent time doing something worthwhile, sacrificing and risking their lives for the safety and betterment of their country, rather than on overpaid playactor.

When NASCAR made this ass-hat Grand Marshal for '04 Daytona...it's was NASCAR'S version of "jump-the-shark".

...and they've been p#ssing on their "traditional fan-base"(not to mention integrity of the sport)ever since.

I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school,
He was terrible in that film.
I need you like Cuba Gooding needed a bigger part,
He’s way better then Ben Affleck.
And now all I can think about is your smile,
And that ty movie too,
Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss you

The day will come when Actors will become patriots again—or never work in the New Hollywood. Now Liberalism is fashiable—cool, the best way to find a job. But this wasn’t always so—nor will it be in the future.

I watch James Woods show (Futurescape) on the science channel faithfully every Tuesday. He says its unlikely that he’ll work in Hollywood again because of his outspoken conservatism.

Conservatism seems to be growing in Hollywood outside the movie business. Lots of conservative (or republican leaning) comedians. Game show hosts seem to be a hotbed of conservatism too.

Interestingly enough, I can't allow myself to spend money on films made by semi-literate liberal sniveling boobs like Affleck. Intellectually, he doesn't meet my exacting standards, nor is he ever likely to develop to a point where he might do so, even minimally.

All that leaves aside Mr. Affleck's appalling lack of talent, which would be yet one more reason not to waste one's money on his films.

It’s amazing to me just how clearly someone can be heard while talking with their head nine feet up their _ss! It’s truly a miracle!! Hey Benji - why don’t you, Alec Baldwin and the rest of your Hollywood mental midgets catch the next plane to anywhere but here and spew your barnyard refuse to someone who really cares . . . like the overnight patrons at the local morgue!!

Well, if he doesn't think he would like a republican, he certainly wouldn't like me, a conservative leaning (small l) libertarian. So I wouldn't want to bother his concience thinking he might be taking money from someone he probably wouldn't like. Ben, I promise not to see another movie you're in, unless it's for free, preferably pirated!
